This is a review of A House for the Season review show
Another fun read by Marion Chesney aka M C Beaton.While it s true that they can be forumlatic, they are always gentle fun.Beaton is one of my go to bedtime reads for just that reason.
Review The servants in the house at Clarges Street are growing on me and , particularly Rainbird It is difficult to know what to think generally of the tenants of the house because by the time you ve got to know them a little, the book is finished Sometimes I think that these books could do with being a little longer and detailed, but part of their charm is how short they are The Regency society comes across well, the little we see of it, and the servants lives are interesting, as it is a uniq [...]

In questo periodo leggo spesso M.C Beaton dopo Agatha Raisin non mi sono lasciata sfuggire Jane la bruttina, secondo volume della serie A house for the season Ho anche il primo, ma ho letto prima questo perch inesplicabilmente stato tradotto come primo in Italia La serie ha in s qualcosa di geniale immaginate Downton Abbey, le storie dei nobili da una parte e quelle della servit dall altra Immaginate il sense of humor tipicamente british e un tocco di omicidio in puro stile Agatha Christie Aggiu [...]
regency era itch scratched.
After the first installment, I suppose this didn t exceed my expectations Though I cannot say it was bad Enjoyed the writing once again and also have a soft spot for mister Rainbird I rate it at 3.5 stars and will revisit the rest in this series at a later date.
Nice light read
Booktubathon book 1 book older than me
It s technically a romance but it s also got some mystery and intrigue worked in there for good measure It s fun and a bit silly okay a lot silly The main character is plain but not overly virtuous or overly naive It s a very good balance that could easily have had her becoming to stupid to live in short order The romance itself is window dressing While Jane cares and feels deeply for our hero not a lot of time is spent in examining feelings nor does the romance move the plot So I guess maybe i [...]
Second in a series about the motley servants tied to a house on Clarges street and the different tenants they serve each London Season Chesney includes lots of historical detail and has an engaging writing style Great literature Nope Enjoyable way to spend a few hours Sure If you like clean regency romance you will enjoy, not just this book but, the whole series.
Marion Chesney MC Beaton has an incredibly way with words, and I enjoyed this book just as much as the first in the series Miser of Mayfair.Despite the lack of magic, I enjoyed hearing audiobook about the main characters, and about the upstairs downstairs aspect of the story, and I found myself really liking Jane, too.These aren t deep books, but hell are they enjoyable.
I m a big fan of Marion Chesney M C Beaton I ve been enjoying this series.
I like the slight intrigue in this book and the continuing story of the servants Fun regency romance.
Was such a lovely storyr estimate someone being just a plain person.
One of my favorites by Ms Marion Chesney The book captured my attention throughout Beauty unravels in the end.
Lots of twists and turns in this historical piece.
Looking forward to the rest of the series

More than forty years I m not kidding I read a couple of the A House for the Season books and I really enjoyed them and always wanted to read the rest of them The problem was I couldn t remember who wrote them turns out some were published under the name M C Beaton, and some under the name Marion Chesney These books are not as romantic and funny as the brilliant Jane Austen or the silly Georgette Heyer, but they do have an interesting angle The books are all set at this Mayfair House which is re [...]
I remember reading a slew of Marion Chesney novels when my children were very young They were just the right kind of light, mindless entertainment that I needed at the time I had to read things that were very put downable books that would not consume me My free time to read was very limited.Basically, all of the books in any given Marion Chesney series were the same book She had a formula, and stuck to it She changed names, places and circumstances, but the basic plots remained identical They we [...]
Second installment in the House for the Season series 3.4 stars The best thing about this series is the main characters Even though each book is a romance, there is a different hero heroine in each who fall in love and move on The main characters, namely the servants at Number 67 Clarges Street in Regency Mayfair, are delightfully three dimensional, probably because they are given 6 books in which to develop This is only the second book but I ve read the whole series before, hence the reason I m [...]
